PUNXSUTAWNEY — B.P.O. Elks No. 1231 and the Inner Circle of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club observed Veterans’ Day a bit early Sunday by unveiling a refurbished flag pole and new stone at Groundhog Park.

The new stone — donated by Philip States and designed and crafted by R.D. Brown Memorials — is dedicated to all local veterans, said Ron Ploucha, exalted ruler of the Elks and the Inner Circle’s Stump Warden.

“Ordinary people doing extraordinary things — simply put, that’s who veterans are,” said Gene Roberts, leading knight at the Elks.
